Design Wall Monday on Sunday Evening......because we get to go to Physical Therapy again Monday morning. That means no time for my Monday morning Blogland tour (insert super sad face here) but I never miss DWM entirely so I'll be here later in the day.
What do you get when you have a healing husband with a good book, a rainy weekend and me that really, really wants to sew? You get things on her design wall. Saturday sewing was in spurts, Sunday sewing started in spurts but after all the company was gone, I got to sit down and sew for a couple of uninterrupted hours. And it was bliss.
So on my wall is my finished Christmas wall hanging because I like looking at it. Below that is my version of Moose on the Porch Layer Cake Quilt Along block 1. I decided to use my batik scraps instead of buying a Layer Cake of fabric, so of course my quilt will be very scrappy.
While following my Google followers, I discovered Erika at Quilts 'n Stuff where she is showing a couple really cool looking candle mats. Following her link to the Candle Mat Swap, I found instructions for the candle mat on the bottom. I used one of my packs from Mr. B's Preview Pack Club at Benartex, Inc. called Ariannna. Then I decided to make another candle mat with the remaining charms and leftover pieces like Erika did. Then there were a few more leftover pieces of fabric so I made mug rugs which seem to be all the rage now and so very cute! I picked out a couple fat quarters from the stash and will use them to the backs of the candle mats. That's the plan for this week......wish me luck.
Grab yourself a snack and something to drink--like a nice tall glass of ice water--and go to Judy L's to check out a bunch of fabulous design walls.
